Visit the Computer History Museum on Sunday, December 13 to celebrate the 200th birthday of Ada Lovelace.
In connection with the museum's newest exhibit Thinking Big: Ada, Countess of Lovelace (December 12, 2015–December 11, 2016), Adafest is part of the Museum’s year-long Lovelace celebration and furthers our ongoing initiative to highlight and honor women in technology.
Come meet local artisans, uncover the sights and styles of Victorian England, and explore Ada’s life through storytelling, live demonstrations, and tours. We’ll even have a costume contest! The Museum will be open until 7:00 PM, with free admission after 4:00 PM. Museum members can enjoy a special morning reception and shop the store’s Semi-Annual Sale all day, with 25 percent off everything—just in time for the holidays!
I will be reading Ada Byron Lovelace and the Thinking Machine at 11:00am and leading a drawing workshop at 12:30.
